I put him at #1 because he is at #25 on the other list, which is too high for a non-metal singer on a metal list. Obviously too many people believe he's a metal singer but he's not. - Metal_Treasure
Great picks Metal_Treasure, did the right thing by putting him here - Ananya
But @Metal_Treasure there are some metal songs of guns n roses (I might be wrong though) like Civil War,Paradise City,Welcome to the Jungle which are heavy metal.And axl rose is a good high-pitched singer and also a great screamer. - zxm

He doesn't even has a good vocal range - zxm
I didn't add him to this list because he IS a metal singer - he sang some songs that can be considered metal and he deserves an honorable mention on the list "Top Metal Singers".
However, I agree he shouldn't be very high on any lists about best metal singers (but yeah, he's usually in the top 10).
His vocal skills aren't very good, his voice isn't a metal voice, lacks power and aggression, his singing style isn't exactly metal, and so on. - Metal_Treasure
